New motorcycle registrations January 2023

Bike sales: The year 2023 starts well

Motorrad Neuzulassungen Januar 2023

This is how it can continue: +3.2% compared to the previous year.

The numbers of newly registered motorcycles of January 2023 are in. According to IVM, 4,598 motorcycles (everything except scooters and 125cc) were sold in Germany in the first month of the year. In contrast to the strong sales months of March to May, this sounds like little, but compared to January 2022, it is not bad at all.
As always, the market leader is BMW with a market share of over 25 percent. Honda remains in 2nd place with a strong 18%, followed by Yamaha and KTM, which already have single-digit market shares. Suzuki is slowly but surely on the rise again: The market share in January 2023 was 4.6% - 9th place ahead of Triumph.
With the best-selling motorcycles Kawasaki surprises - unfortunately negative: The other sales guarantors Z900 and Z650 still weaken a little. Only 31 units of the revised Z650 were sold in January. There must be problems with availability. Another surprise: The Suzuki V-Strom 1050V-Strom in 5th place! Also very strong: The Honda CB 650 R in 2nd place behind the eternal nerd BMW GS. Well, with the still weak sales figures, even the smallest swings can cause immediate movement.
